Ep 6 - Peloton’s 2019 Holiday Ad
As a fitness junkie, I became a wee bit obsessed with Peloton when I first learned about their product - a quiet spin bike with live classes in your own home at a ridiculous price tag (worth 3 years of a regular gym membership lol)? Sounded too good to be true and I knew I would never achieve Peloton status. I did however attend one of their live recorded classes in NYC (much more affordable) and witnessed the influence of their cult instructors. The analysis of the holiday ad starts at ~ 10 minute mark. Soul Cycle must be LAUGHING right now. I feel bad for the actors (but hey, it's bringing them more fame right?) but I think the real winner out of this controversy is Ryan Reynolds and his quick rebuttal. Clever AF, strategic, and now everybody loves Ryan even more, while Peloton's stock price continues to drop. The backlash isn't surprising to me at all - the price of a pure Peloton already creates class divide. I truly hope they will become less tone deaf in the future.
